Ark Ecological Services will be cutting down invasive trees and shrubs at Roxborough Village on Thursday November 7, weather permitting. We will probably start around 11 or 12 to wait for the temperatures to warm up.
We will be applying Garlon 3A (Signal Word: Caution) and a Basal Bark Oil to the cut stumps of invasive trees/shrubs such as Common Buckthorn, Siberian Elm, and Russian Olive.
Herbicides will be marked with a blue dye or yellow dye. Yellow “Pesticide Warning” flags will be posted at major entrances into the open space, along trails, and at key locations to let adjacent property owners and others know about the herbicide applications. Flags have the date sprayed, the herbicides sprayed, and the signal word posted on the back of the flag. Please stay out of sprayed areas until dry – usually about 15 -30 minutes.
